  1. Emma

    Really happy with the Sporty Shorty. It’s really strudy and stays in place well whilst at the same time allowing for freedom of movement and comfort. The handle is a great addition for control/helping my dog over styles etc when necessary too. Super quick delivery, arrived in time for our holiday! We did 25 miles over a couple of days in Northumberland and it was spot on, no issues with it at all.

    What canni say its a fabulous harness i tried it on three of my dogs today. Plenty of adjustments easy to measure for sizing.
    Love the omg handle needed with one specially by traffic😉 . There is an orange which goes perfect with my black and white border collie. Oh and team colours.
    Its sturdy giving me confidence with it. Brilliant piece of kit.

    First run in his Sporty Shorty this morning & Red ran amazing! No rasping & it didn’t shift when he wasn’t pulling, like some harnesses we’ve tried. As Red is also reactive, the handle is ideal, just in case I need to hold him close or for helping him over awkward stiles!
    Arrived quickly & plenty of room for adjustment to get the perfect fit.
    Love the purple colour & would definitely recommend it for canicross or hiking 🤩

    Loving this harness! Went for a Cani-hike with my labs and the harnesses stayed in place on their backs whether they were pulling out in front or walking/running in beside me. My boys like to go in the water and the harness coped well and didn’t seem to collect mud which is always a bonus!
    Great value for a great harness!

    I love how well this harness fits my mixed breed. And the bright colour makes it perfect for running at dusk, it is really visible and stands out. There is no rubbing and the harness sits lovely and flush against my dogs skin. The design is smart and tidy and the harness feels really well made and sturdy. My dog pulls reasonably hard and there was no rasping sounds whatsoever, a brilliant fit. Highly recommended.

    We were given the pleasure of trying the sporty shorty when it came out and what a super little harness it is. My girl is quite petite and fits her nice and snug. I also think the thicker breast peice will fit the wider chested dogs nicely (alot get armpit wedgie) Super harness to fit a variety of dogs 🐕 Great selection of colours too 😁

  7. Ebony Judge

    Great piece of kit especially for those big barrel chest breeds! Fits my dobe brilliant. The handle is so handy for grabbing to pass other dogs/people. Definitely worth the investment!

    I can absolutely recommend Sporty Paws. I’ve been using their Sporty Shorty harness with my difficult to fit German Shepherd X who is very tiny but thickset.

    It’s incredibly well made, the dispatch was instant and it was here next day.

    I also love the colour choice. Its nice to have a big range of choice.

    The sizing was clear and easy to measure. I’m looking forward to really putting it through its paces mantrailing.

    So far it’s been brilliant on our trailing sessions, as it’s comfortable for her to wear.

    Love this harness – fits my girl really well – she can pull hard into it and doesn’t gasp or have any limited movement 🙂 it’s sits well and doesn’t move either – even when Storm rolls the dirt it comes back still in place 🙂
    Love the handle for quick squirrel grabbing and it comes in PURPLE!!!

    Our business is exercising dogs in harness, both Canicross and walking. This is an excellent harness and a very good rival to the Zero DC short which we have been using on many dogs for years. Build quality is excellent, harness feels very sturdy and is very stable on the dog. It’s doesnt move around or sag when it gets wet. It’s sits very nicely around the chest with no restriction of movement whatsoever and definately no chafing under the dogs pits.
    Dogs are more than happy to wear it, so it must be very comfortable. Adjustment is quick and easy if required, and the grab handle is great for holding Fido back at the roadside or at the start of the race.
    Given the price difference between this and the ever popular Zero DC, this would be our go to harness and the one we would recommend.

    Wonderful harness! The material is nice and padded and soft to touch whilst being strong. My dogs are naturally strong pullers and they seem comfy doing so in these harnesses. I’d say they pull better. The colours are really striking too. Love the orange and teal. They are easy to get on and off. I’ve one dog with a large head so it is a little of a wriggle to get over his collar, but the soft material makes this easier. Really pleased with these. I also noticed that they dry quickly and any mud comes off easily. I’ve not needed to actually clean them yet, just a wipe if needed is fine!
